It depends what mount your vivitar lenses have - you can easily search ebay for mount adaptors that will allow you to use most older lenses on the 4/3 body, but you will only be able to use manual focus and need to work in aperature priority or fully manual mode. A generic adaptor for a OM, Nikon, Pentax or Contax mount should cost around $20. you should read up on them as there are some differences with how they are made and function, but basically are just mechanical coupling devices that fit the lense to the camera. remember, you lose all automatic features

Hi. I have a Olympus E500 and I bought a Rokinon 500M-4/3 500mm F8.0 Mirror Lens for Olympus on EBay the other day. Since I'm new to the SLR works the problem is I can't figure out to attach the lens onto...


If the seller advertised it as for an Olympus camera then it should have included the proper T-mount adapter that fits between the back of the lens and the camera body. The adapter should look something like this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/631513-REG/General_Brand_ATOD_T_Mount_SLR_Camera_Adapter.html

I have a Pentax k1000, and was given a few vivitar and olypus lenses. They do not fit the camera. What can I do?????


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Lenses with the Pentax K-mount can be used on the K1000, lenses with other mounts can not.

Olympus lenses will not mount onto a Pentax camera.

You can sell the lenses, give them to someone with the appropriate camera(s), or use them as paperweights.

Olympus om-2 cvamera lenses


You are able to use your old OM lenses with a new Olympus digital SLR camera. You will need to purchase an MF-OM 1 lens adapter to be able to connect these lenses to the digital SLR camera. Also when using these lenses you will only be able to use the camera in manual focus mode as these lenses are not capable to shhot with an auto focus mode.

Olympus Cameras


You can use the lens from your old OM camera on the EVOLT E-410. You would need to purchase an MF-OM-1 adapter to make those lenses fit the new digital SLR camera. Also when using those lenses the camera would need to be used in Manual mode as there is no auto focus capability when using the old OM lenses.

Will my olmpus lenses fit on a nikon n75 slr 35mm camera


Generally, the lenses used with the Olympus cameras will not be compatible with the Nikon cameras.

However, there are some converter adapters available in the market. You can look for the Olympus to Nikon converter adapters. These adapters will help you in using the Olympus lenses with the Nikon cameras.

Lens Compatibility - Digital / Film


Hey savmoney,
Your current OM lenses are not directly compatible with the current four thirds mount used on Olympus DSLR's, but there is an OM four thirds adapter which should allow you to mount your older lenses to a new Olympus DSLR. You should have limited functionality while using the adapter, but according to the manufacturer aperture priority should work and full manual. I have included a link to a chart that shows which OM lenses are supported by this adapter. I hope this helps!

E-330 choice of lenses


Hi Fredher,

Your wife has many lens choices for her camera.
Her camera is called the Four Third Camera.
You can use lenses made by Leica, Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma.
Also, can use older OM lenses for the Four Third, but you will need an adapter for it. Adapter can be purchased from Olympus.

Leica, Olympus and Panasonic make Four Third Cameras and lenses.

Sigma makes lenses for Four Third, too. .
You just have to tell them that you have a Four Third camera.

Try to sell that 40-150 lenses. Then buy the 50-200/2.8-3.5 SWD. If you got the money, buy the 90-250/2.8 from Olympus.
This will give you the reach for sports without getting run over.

50-200 is equal to 100-400mm
90-250 is equal to 180-500mm.

Just to get a 500mm/F2.8 on a 35mm camera will hit you over $12,000.00 USD.

If cost is a factor, then buy the Sigma APO 70-200/2.8 II EX DG Marco HSM.

70-200 = 140 to 400mm

To get a 400/2.8 will cost you $9,000.00 on a 35mm camera.

All lenses above all made for the working pros.

Hope they are helpful.
